('RAF' meaning "rough as f**k".)


Andy,

Well, here we are at the apex of the day. And here is the first part of Grey Riff, completely denuded and untreated. But there is a gasping cough of a structure now, where there once lay only a CPR failure. Already you can hear the impact of your improvised parts... and there are moments when they carry the song more than the Nameless sample does. Thus underlining my evangelically crazed maxim of this. being. a. guitar. based. album.

Perhaps such formatting of text suggests that it's time to go to bed.

Much to do on this still, but you can at least get the idea. There are three more sections: the Fugazi sample build up, the screaming noise bit, and the 70s experimental synth sample outro. It's my intention to take the existing sounds that are on the arrange page from two years ago, weave your guitar in around it all, then slowly pick apart the whole piece so you can't tell where the magpied bits end and our contributions begin.

Thoughts and comments encouraged as always,

Andrew.
